Thank you for the taking the time to fill in the distance learning survey just before CNY.
We have analysed the results and these can be found on the following table by clicking HERE.
The results are very positive and whilst we can celebrate all the things we are doing well, we are also conscious there are things we can tweak or development further. We have shared all the individual feedback to the appropriate teachers so that they can look for trends and, if appropriate, respond to individuals to provide additional support or to seek clarification regarding a comment.
The table, with the link above, represents responses from close to 150 parents, 40 staff and 150 Year 4, 5 and 6 students. It is the most comprehensive survey we have done since our distance learning provision began.
Some interesting points to highlight, from my perspective:
- It is really pleasing to see so much alignment between the children, staff and parents in terms of our provision. A majority of the questions saw similar response rates across the 3 stakeholders.
- As a community we all feel our children, including the children themselves, that the children’s well being has been appropriately and strongly supported
- Students responded lower in areas of the work being engaging and challenging (either too easy or too hard) and this is something the staff have worked hard to address and will continue to work hard to address
- 78% of parents feel we have got the balance right regarding the amount of Zoom lessons, but 5.8% want less zoom lessons and 15.9% want more zooms provided. This is in contrast to the children where 82.2% felt we have got the balance right but 13% felt there were too many Zoom lessons. Only 4.8% wanted more zoom lessons. Staff either felt we had the balance right or provided too many Zoom lessons (11.1%).
- The ESF app seems to have made life easier for everyone but I know there are more features that we as a school could be tapping into so hopefully, in the coming weeks and months, you notice the app being even more beneficial.
- Finally, 91% of our parents, 96% of our staff and 93% of our children felt that the children have continued to make progress in their learning. This is very pleasing as the fear was that our children would not progress. The assessments that we continue to give to our children highlight that our children, are indeed making progress. Often in line with the type of progress we would normally see if the children were in all the time. That is a credit to everyone involved and a testament to how hard everyone is working.
